|Giovannino Perdigiorno comes to a strange country. Everything was round, even houses and roofs. He sees some roses and when he picks one, he sees that even thorns are blunt. A policeman sees him and gives him a fine, cause picking flowers was forbidden. He also explains that it was the "blunt country", where swords were blunt, where pins did not exist. In the end the policeman explains that the fine consists in slapping the officer..... Giovannino thinks that this would be terrible and so he leaves the most polite country he had ever seen.|
